Tom Brady threw for 271 yards against the Eagles last week, but that was influenced by the game script, since the Bucs totally controlled that game and did not need to air it out.
The future Hall-of-Famer will need to air it out at a higher rate in a tough game against the Los Angeles Rams. While the Rams have a tough pass defense, ranking sixth in Pass DVOA, they’ve given up 260.9 passing yards per game, the ninth-most in the NFL.
